2013 TBR Pile Challenge

Eh, I can’t help it, of course, but to sign up to another challenge.  However, it has always been a challenge for me to read the books I actually have in the house and not ones I’ve just received or bought or brought back from the library!  The effect is undeniably an accumulative and overflowing one -I really need to get some of these books read and handed over 😉

Here is my list which I’ve sorted on GR by date they were added to my TBR list there (only 3 I actually got this year but the rest have been sitting on my shelf for maybe 2 years or more).

  1. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
  2. A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute
  3. Oscar and Lucinda by Peter Carey
  4. The Harmony Silk Factory by Tash Aw
  5. Musk & Byrne by Fiona Capp
  6. Grace Notes by Bernard MacLaverty
  7. The Book of God by Walter Wangerin Jr
  8. Thirteen Steps Down by Ruth Rendell
  9. A Sense of the World by Jason Roberts
  10. Capricornia by Xavier Herbert

My Alternates:

  1. Highways to a War by Christopher J. Koch
  2. The White Earth by Andrew McGahan

Thanks, Adam!  Can’t wait to start 😉
